The Republic of Splootan is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Marc Sploot with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, pith helmet sales, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 3.199 billion Splootanians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Splootan City. The average income tax rate is 68.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Splootish economy, worth 460 trillion francs a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 144,078 francs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Failed genetic experiments wreak havoc as they roam the countryside, businesses have become paranoid as waves of lawsuits sweep the nation, citizens know never to accept cookies from strangers, and executions are marked by quiet dignity and maybe a final round or two of whist. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Splootan's national animal is the Scott's Oriole, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Coryism.

Splootan is ranked 20,441st in the world and 9th in The Democratika for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 5,035.47 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
